This Old House
I'm currently living in the old family house. The house is 150 years old. It's been in the family forever. I grew up in the house as well as my father, his mother, his mother's mother... etc. People have also died in this house, peacefully and tragically.
Last night I had experienced sleep paralysis. Or was it? I wake up (or I think that I am awake) but I can't move or speak. I try to scream but I can't, I try to move but I can't. This only happens in this house. I use to experience it when I was a little girl here. We moved way and it never happened again. I moved away when I grew up and after some time away I moved back here to this house to save it and restore it. Once again the dreams started. They are strange and very frightning.
Last night was the icing on the cake. I 'woke' up but couldn't move. I felt like something was holding me down. I tried to scream but couldn't. Something was touching me on my arm and holding my face. I actually began to see myself lying there with my daughter next to me. There was a black cloud like figure above the bed. I finally began to panic and shouted out in my mind 'God help me'. I awoke just like that. I immediately sat up and felt as though a huge weight had been lifted off of me.
This happens about 2-3 times a month and it is driving me crazy. I've never had the experience I had last night with the touching and 'seeing', it freaked me out. I come from a very religious family who think that I am just under too much stress. I know what I felt and saw. I've seen odd things, smelt things and felt things in this house that have made me feel many different things. Its almost becoming part of the norm.
